Reading for the recordPublished 11:59am Wednesday, October 17, 2012
Falkville Senior Clay Austill reads to second graders at Falkville Elementary School in the effort to help set a new world record.
Each fall Jumpstart’s Read for the Record program attempts to break the World Record for the most people reading the same book on the same day.
The book this year was “Ladybug Girl” and the “Bug Squad” by David Soman and Jacky Davis. Falkville High School students read to elementary classes during the day to participate in the program. Pictured listening are students in Mrs. Katie Sparkman’s second grade class.
